Cheers esqinchi, and it's only getting started, lets hope I can keep it updated!

I don't usually eat pumpkin, but a friend gave us a fresh homegrown one, Usually I'd roast it, but my better half persuaded me to steam it. It was gorgeous. I toasted the seeds too, but they came out very tough.

What do you do for mobility exercises?

 

Sardines, ha, what a funny thing to crave. I guess there isn't a lot of similar vegan options. Ever go to Asian markets and buy the veggie versions of fish/seafood? Some of it is pretty tasty.

C.O. thanks, will try the Asian shops.

Mobility depends on the day and I don’t know the names of most of it! But here goes.

Clams or squat with bands on knees and crap walk sideways to get the glutes/external rotators working.

Good mornings with the broomstick, to get the glutes working, and to help keep a neutral pelvis

Scapula, and full rom press-ups to get the shoulders working.

Kneeling wrist press-ups, for wrists

On all fours and extend opposite leg and arm to get all those stabilisers working.

Face pulls to get the scapula working

Duck walk with broomstick in the overhead position

Hollow position work, dead bugs to more advanced, to help keep a neutral pelvis

Then lunges with bar, good mornings with bar, behind the neck press with bar, and overhead squat with bar

Also need to do thoracic extension more often, usually kneel on all fours, put a hand to ear and twist to look up, or else lunge touch hand to floor and raise the other and look at ceiling

 

This weekend I was away so diet fell apart

I also entered a comp on Saturday weighed in at 81.4kg for 85kg class (I thought I was 2kg heavier, incorrect scales at home) made all lifts; snatch 60, 62, 64, and Clean and jerk 70, 73, 76. For a 140kg total, I came 5th out of 5. 4th place got a 163ish total and 3rd a 200ish total got a lot of work to do!

Snatches were power snatched, need to work on hitting depth for the heavier snatches – should hopefully add ~10kg. need to work on core to hit heavier jerks.

Minor issue, rubbed bar off shins so need to work on getting knees back and double knee bend.

Overall the competition was amazing and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and watching others lift, I learned loads.

Gonna slow bulk 2.5kg over the next two months

True, mrbear666 just trying to make things a bit better as I am gaining the 2kg

 

On a positive note the pushups are coming along nicely, just gotta watch form, tight core, neutral pelvis and shoulder/scapula

 

Also I keep forgetting to put it in the log but I have started doing a few ab rollouts from knees when I am stretching after training to get my core strength up for the jerk
